Weekend Recap

The Ritty Rats love to climb trees! Leroy and Loretta are also liking their new "siblings" a lot more than they did a couple of weeks ago!

Mike got to fire up his new grill and he made yummy chicken and a steak!

Our newest favorite pasttime is watching the two hummingbirds that visit or feeders.

On Monday we had the rest of our tile work completed. Our kitchen backsplash is beautiful!! It really changed the look of our kitchen! We are going to change out the plugs, switches and covers so they blend in better together.

Ritty Rats, Vito and Carmella

Vito and Carmella are two new members of our family! Mom found a litter of kittens at City Hall in the spring and they had been abandoned. They were scared to death of people and now they won't leave you alone! They are two of the sweetest cats and start purring when you look their way! Leroy and Lorretta are sure of what to think about the Ritty Rats that have come to live with us, but they love to chase them up the trees!

Of course Mike named them and they are named after two characters his favorite movie, The Godfather (Parts I, II and III). Vito Corlenoe is the head of the Corlenoe crime family (loving referred to as the Godfather) and Carmella is his wife. Leave it to my husband to name our cats after a mafia movie.


P.S. Don't worry Granny, they are outside cats!
